I’ve been so busy jamming to Dawn Richard‘s first solo song and video ‘Save Me From You‘ (aptly shared as #SMFU) that I forgot to share it with you. I’ve always been a fan of Dawn’s songwriting. Her words really touch me.
I don’t need no rescue from a foreign plane or saving from a building going up in flames
so baby before you go put on your cape save me from you
don’t know the man behind the masked identity
cuz you’re the only hero I know that can be
saving every one but keep on hurting me
Save me from you
The Ev Solomon-directed video is making moves all over the blogs this week. I’m not sure how it relates to the song other than being gray and it’s raining in a few of the clips…but the song is definitely a keeper. Very Brandy-inspired, but Dawn has already paid homage so let’s stop the hate before it even starts. I’m not here for that.
